Velle means to wish, will etc., but what verb do you use when you want something, like "I want money"? As well, what is the difference between velle's wishing for and malle's preferring/wanting something more?

"uelle" would be fine. "I want money": Pecuniam uolo. "uolo" has the very general connotation of "want," "would like," while its more subjunctified versions express less certainty.
